Lafayette, Indiana (Tippecanoe County) Bright Lights Stacked Up On Each Other

Date: March 22, 2006
Time: Approximately 9:15 p.m.

Message: On Wednesday, March 22, 2006, at approximately 9:15pm, I was out in my yard walking my dog and in the northeastern sky I saw what seemed like a tracer bullet race across the sky and stop, this event happened 6 more times. The round bright lights ended up stacked on top of each other (the only way I can explain it is to say if you stacked 3 number 8s on top of each other, then took away 1/2 of an 8, you'd have the seven circles) that I saw in the sky that night. They blinked off once, then came on again, then blinked off and were gone. These lights were bright, brighter than any star, when they first were moving (like tracers) they were quicker than anything I've ever seen in the sky, definitely not a helicopter nor an airplane. My husband and I live 10 or so miles from Lafayette, Indiana (Tippecanoe County) out in the country, where there are no street lights.

Thank you to the witness for this report.

Tippecanoe County Sheriff Smokey Anderson Says Indiana Lights Are Flares

HBCC UFO Research: After contacting the Grissom AFB in Indiana asking about if they were carrying out any type of exercise that may account for the strange sightings reported by many over the orange lights, the AFB tells us nothing pretty much. Yet the Lafayette (Ind.) Journal and Courier contacted the Tippecanoe County Sheriff and spoke with a Smokey Anderson who had received information from the Miami County Sheriff who reported the lights to be flares from training exercises done at Grissom.

Mr. Vike,

I checked with Tippecanoe County Sheriff Smokey Anderson about the orange-colored lights you said have been spotted near Lafayette and other nearby towns. He said that the Miami County sheriff said the lights are from flares from training exercises done at Grissom. Grissom, however, will say that they are not doing training exercises if they are contacted. Anderson, who lives in southern Tippecanoe County, also spotted the lights about a year ago and made some calls then. He explained them as these flares that shoot off in a circular motion (forgive me for the description, but it's best explained in person). It's used to tell an aircraft which direction to head, he said. I hope this explanation helps. Feel free to contact me if you have any other questions.

Thank you to the Lafayette (Ind.) Journal and Courier for their help.
